I love living where I do, and I love the beauty of the United States. I just got home from my second road trip of the summer on Thursday night, and combining my two trips I’ve pretty much driven across the entire country this summer. I’ve been all through the Rocky Mountains, the Nevada desert, farmland, the Appalachian Mountains, ocean roads, beautiful fields, and rolling hills this summer. I’ve driven along the banks of the Mississippi River after sailing down it on a cruise in May. The United States is beautiful, and has so many different landscapes and natural wonders. I really love living here.
I don’t do much on the 4th of July because I enjoy just staying home with my family and eating yummy food. We’re having a barbecue with hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, chips, and strawberry pie. And then we’ll probably lay around in our air conditioning and watch a fun movie or play games. My bad lungs keep me from setting off fireworks in the street, but I know lots will be going on around me, so I’ll keep an eye out.
If you celebrate, what are your plans for the 4th? What kinds of things do you like to do to celebrate? I hope you have a lovely day!
